Product Details The Solarflare® SFN4112F single-port 10G Ethernet SFP+ enterprise server adapter delivers superior performance as well as the lowest power in the industry. Designed as a very high-performance server adapter, the SFN4112F supports both direct attach copper twin axial patch cords for connections between servers and top-of-rack switches and optical fiber for switch to server connections or longer reach via a patch panel. LOW-LATENCY APPLICATION ACCELERATION The SFN4112F delivers the industry’s lowest latency performance and full line-rate throughput on a single 10G port. Using a kernel-based network stack, the SFN4112F provides substantial acceleration to highmessage rate and low latency applications. When combined with Solarflare’s OpenOnload stack, the SFN4112F achieves TCP/UDP application latency of less than 5 microseconds. HIGH-PERFORMANCE ARCHITECTURE Several key architectural features included in the 10GbE server adapter distinguish it from other solutions: stateless off loads, virtualization support, very-low power consumption, and very low application latency including support for Solarflare’s OpenOnload™ technology. The SFN4112F supports stateless hardware off-loads and performance enhancing features that provide efficient processing of network and storage traffic such as: iSCSI acceleration, IPv4 offload, RSS, MSI and MSI-X. SCALABLE, HARDWARE ASSISTED VIRTUALIZATION The SFN4112F is built from the ground up to support high-performance in virtualized server environments. The adapter’s architecture provides up to 4096 protected interfaces to the host system, enabling virtual machine scaling and/or CPU core scaling. The SFN4112F supports Direct Guest Access for Citrix XenServer 5.x. The SFN4112F is VMware Ready™ and on the VMware HW Certification List. LOWEST POWER At 4.5 watts power consumption, the SFN4112F is the most energy efficient 10GbE server adapter on the market.
